Network in 60 seconds - short film

in #shortfilm2 months ago (edited)

I really love the 1976 movie Network. The script is fantastic, the performances classic and the story couldn't be more meaningful than it is today with the state of the crap mainstream news media.

When I decided I wanted to produce something for the 2012 Jameson Film festival 'Done In 60 Seconds' competition It was my first choice. The idea was to pick a film and reshoot it in a 60 seconds edit. For me, it was a lot of fun trying to distil the movie down to just the important parts and pull together a cast that could portray the vision. I was actually quite happy with the result.

Although we didn't win any prizes it was nice to be part of the festival and see our little movie on the big screen.
